I knew I shouldn’t have said it out loud.
- Sometimes, if I say certain things out loud, they will come true.
I guess it’s like that saying unspoken fears come true, or something along those lines. Anyways, the home I bought had pretty bad previous owners, and the home had to be repaired in a lot of ways, since it had been neglected for so long. The HVAC machine was by far the worst, the original heating and cooling technician told me I should just plain get a new one, but since I didn’t want to do that, I had to find another HVAC professional who was willingly to repair it for me. Thankfully that heating and A/C tech did a fantastic job, and the HVAC device was working almost like new. However, the cooling technician did warn me that while it worked now, it might now last for that long, and that I should be preparing for a new HVAC installation. I understood this, but I hoped that the old unit could last as long as possible. A year passed, and I was feeling pretty confident in the cooling machine. It lasted through the brutal winter and blazing summer, and fall and winter as well. It was great! I even remarked to my wife how well it was doing and how long it has lasted. As soon as the words left my lips I regretted saying it, because then I worried the A/C machine would break down. My wife reassured me that that would not happen. The very next day though, the A/C unit did just that, and it broke down. I knew I should have kept my mouth shut.
